Is there any automatic liability for death by health complications caused by someone already charged for causing the complication?
I'm aware charges can be revisited but does it have to be brought up again? What is the time limit on that?
Case that made me think:
A few years ago a little girl died after ten years struggling with health problems caused when her parent's car was hit by a speeding car the other driver was, at the time, charged with dangerous driving. After his daughter's death the father then wanted to press charges for death by dangerous driving.
This made me wonder where the law stood on this, a verdict of dangerous driving was given - does that mean the case is considered closed the minute that verdict is passed and if the victim were to die the day after it would need to be reopened? Or would it be automatically reopened with a charge of manslaughter?
